It’s safe to say Kanye West is less than pleased with his interview on the “Today” show. Kanye sat down with Matt Lauer earlier this week to apologize for the comments he made about president George W. Bush during a 2005 Hurricane Katrina telethon. “Today” aired a preview of Kanye’s interview on Tuesday, but managed to anger the rap superstar by including footage of him interrupting Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. Kanye has since tweeted, quote, “I don’t mess with Matt Lauer or the Today Show…and that’s a very nice way for me to put it.” Kanye goes on to say that Lauer tried to force his answers, noting that the entire interview was “very brutal.” Kanye adds, quote, “I felt very alone very used very tortured very forced very misunderstood very hollow very very misused. I don’t trust anybody but myself! Everyone has an agenda. I don’t do press anymore.

No surprise here: The one and only Oprah Winfrey, who is currently in the midst of her final season of the influential Oprah Winfrey Show, nabs the top spot of Forbes list of Hollywood’s highest-earning women!
Winfrey, 56, who brought in an estimated $315 million this year, outranks even Hollywood’s most bankable men. But her incredible earnings weren’t enough to make up the slack of the rest of the women. As Forbes noted, “the entertainment industry’s highest-earning men collectively raked in an estimated $1.2 billion between June 1, 2009, and June 1, 2010, compared to the $835 million the women pulled down during the same period.” So what made all the difference? More blockbuster male directors like James Cameron and George Lucas.
But, Winfrey wasn’t the only female to earn some cash over the past year. Read More »
